1630 Scenic Ave Unit: Upper, Berkeley, CA 94709
Gorgeous 1928 home built in the Spanish Eclectic style combines period detailing and modern updates with a Bay view and an ideal location just north of campus. And if you are a foodie, the Gourmet Ghetto beckons with the CheeseBoard Collective, Sauls, Chez Panisse, and the first Pete's coffee all within minutes. The exterior of this home is a vintage dream: ornate plasterwork, wrought iron Juliet balcony under vast windows, red tile roof, mature junipers by the sidewalk. Inside this upper unit, find a spacious dining room with charming built-ins, coved ceiling, crown and baseboard mouldings, polished wood floors. The bright living room runs the entire length of the home, so ample space for entertaining, and features a wedding cake of a fireplace: white, decorative, delicious. Down the hallway, two sunny bedrooms share a dazzling remodeled bath. And if you know anything about stoves, the Wedgewood in the kitchen will make you swoon. In perfect condition, it provides a lovely counterpart to the custom cabinetry with modern hardware, and the handsome quartz countertops.
